Morocco

Here is a good article on Muhammad VI in Morocco from the Economist.

I would also recommend this book by Tahar ben Jelloun: This Blinding Absence of Light.

"Corruption" by the same author is also worth a quick read, if only to discover what lies inside the mind of the morrocan bureaucrat middle class. belive you me, it's frightening.

who was it who was telling me the other day that it was an open secret that mohammed the sixth was gay?

It certainly wasn't me. Here at al-Nawadir, we don't speculate on the sexual preferences of world leaders - well at least we don't do it in public forums.

I have yet to read "Corruption," but if the ever wise al-Thani recommends it, then I will be adding it to my amazon account very soon.
